Our Koh Tao Diving Courses TripAdvisor reviews

FANTASTIC DIVING SCHOOL. We recently done our 4 day open water diving course at Phoenix Divers in Koh Tao. Our instructor, Fabian was absolutely fantastic from the get go. Had the most amazing experience and couldn’t recommend this diving school enough!

The dive masters and all other staff were exceptional at what they done! Everyone made you feel at ease and got rid of all anxieties we were feeling! They all have so much patience and are so friendly – if you’re thinking of doing scuba diving definitely go with Phoenix Divers!

AMAZING DIVING SCHOOL AND AWESOME INSTRUCTOR. I always had a dream of scuba diving, and now is my new passion. I did my Open Water course few days ago at Phoenix Divers and I could not be more happy and satisfied with the course, school and the instructor. First was kind of difficult to choose a dive school to do the course cose in Koh tao now all the school have the same price so I did some research and went in 3 schools to talk and check the facilities before to choose Phoenix.

They facilities are great with new equipment, clean classrooms, very big pink boat with free coffee, tea and fruits during the dives and the free BBQ for the divers was amazing. The course was smooth and easy thanks to our Instructor Glauco. He made everything looks very easy and interesting and I felt safe all the time underwater during the course and he always smiling and make jokes with us and the others instructors. Phoenix has a amazing atmosphere. Thanks Glauco and all phoenix staff to make my dream become my new passion.

GREAT TRIP ON KOH TAO AND SCUBA DIVING. Had an amazing week here on Koh Tao. I just finished my dove with Phoenix divers and my instructor Hugo tiger was amazing. He led us calmly through all the courses while being alert and helping us wherever we needed and giving us support and confidence.

I would recommend Hugo not only because of his professionalism but also because he leads confidently the whole crew. You feel safe and secure during your whole trip with him. I recommend you doing the diving course with Phoenix divers and Hugo tiger if you get the chance.

OPEN WATER DIVER. My friend and I planned to do the open water diver during our stay on Koh Tao, we spend a long time reading all reviews of the resorts and decided for Phoenix in the end, which was perfect :-). It‘s located directly by the beach which isn‘t just beautiful but also practicable – we stayed next door at AC. Everybody is very nice and supportive.

Nate was our instructor and he was awesome, very patiently, I felt safe every second of my course and very professional, you feel well prepared to go for your first dive :-). My friend couldn‘t adjust her ears so she stopped before diving and I had a 1:1 care by Nate 🙂 (lucky me). All in all, I can fully recommend Phoenix divers Koh Tao, not only a lovely time but also a great preparation for following dives in my life. Thank you :-).

AMAZING DIVING SCHOOL AND AWESOME INSTRUCTOR. Me and my friend went to Koh Tao to take our divers license but we hadn’t decided what school to go with. As we were walking past Phoenix divers the manager, James came out to talk to us, he told us about their Open Water Diver course and also about accommodation that you got for a discounted price while taking your diving courses and it all sounded amazing so we decided to go with Phoenix.

We are so glad we did. We had so much fun doing the Open Water Diver course that we decided to do the Advanced Adventurer with them as well when we finished. Best decision of my life! Ask for Finn! He was the best instructor ever, I felt so safe and confident diving with him and he made it all so fun. The accommodation was the best one we’ve stayed at yet and we’ve been travelling for 2 months! The atmosphere at Phoenix and all the people we met there made our time on Koh Taounforgettable, we don’t want to leave… 🙁 Guys, go diving with Phoenix divers you will definitely not regret it!!!!

FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL. I was recommended to this dive center by a few travellers I had met in Mexico and the experience I had was nothing short of excellent. This was the first time I had tried scuba diving so I opted for the open water diving course.

The staff here are world class and very passionate about diving and made the three day course effortless and unforgettable. Overall I was very impressed with the professionalism of phoenix divers and would highly recommend to anybody looking to dive at koh tao!

OPEN WATER AND ADVANCED DIVING COURSES ON KOH TAO. Spent an amazing week learning to dive with Phoenix! Took the open water course and immediately signed up for the advanced course as soon as I had finished. This was the perfect introduction to scuba diving.

My instructor, Hugo Tiger, was brilliant: experienced, fun, and thorough. I always felt comfortable diving with him and had a blast too. He gave us a terrific tour of Koh Tao’s dive sights, including a night dive and a shipwreck dive. Can’t wait to come back! I highly recommend learning with Phoenix divers!
